After I published this email here, Hale now seems to have an open invitation to the hole, with Tom and Pete as cheerleaders. I've been trying for many years to encourage every anthro-wacko popping up on the AT -- and there's been a few, some of them literally stark, raving mad, others have been holocaust deniers (a mental disease) -- to go to the Unthinkable Facility, because I've always thought they deserve each other. Besides, it's a place where the sun don't shine. Like attracts like, obviously. They're fixing to invite him. PS should have a ball with everything to do with Jews, because Hale hates them so much he's been writing anti-Semitic tirades in the past in unsolicited private emails to AT subscribers.
Hale is not the first anthroposophist I want absolutely nothing to do with, but he's positively one of the worst and one of the maddest.

It's a shame that people think that it's acceptable to write such unpleasant stuff. Doubly so, I should have thought, for a person that I understand claims to take Steiner's ideas seriously. I think that Stephen C's notion that we should strive to be generous in our conversations is a good one, and, though I may have fallen short of this in the past on WC, it certainly seems as if Mr Hale would benefit from giving it some consideration. I can quite understand why you wish to head back to safety under your leafy Norwegian cover, and best wishes as you go (but it's nice when you do come out as we miss your good humour and interesting badinage).
